    http://www.styleforum.net/content/type/61/id/485807/ - here is a photo of the above shirts in action. Oops, wrong company, that is a Luxire shirt.

    Actually, those shirts above, are from http://store.apolisglobal.com/defend-tomorrow/defend-tomorrow-initiative-bangladesh/ the charity range. So a big proportion of the money on those shirts goes to charity. It is like when I donated to TBM's Movember cause, if you can recall? I wasn't giving him money because his Mo looked excellent and I thought he should keep the look, or there was something to gain, it was because it was going to a great cause. Hence, under normal circumstances, he doesn't have a mo.

    It is like bagging out the pens you are given when you donate to Guide Dogs Australia.

    Luxire is an MTM company though...

    I like the pants you bought, but not much of the other stuff on their site unfortunately - not to mention the sanctimonious marketing!

    Very good! I'm waiting for a restock of the four season stuff before I can get a pair in my size.

    Who bought that purple fabric, thinking it would look great in a shirt. A shirt was made from that fabric and that is how it turned out. They made an error in judgment in thinking that would be a 'great' looking fabric to buy.

    That photo posted a few pages back of the dude in the MJ Bale tuxedo and slippers, I thought, looked terrible. The button stance was really high and his hips looked enormous. His slippers were completely unacceptable, unless he is having a black-tie even in his bedroom. I am not prepared to trash the MJ Bale name over it - some of their other suits are too good. I know you weren't doing that with Apolis, it just felt like you were :). I am relieved you approve of the pants. You might not approve of them if you saw them IRL. They seem to have quite a high rise!

    Is that Apolis as in Apolis Activism? They have some cool stuff. I think you can actually get it at Incu.

    Anyone ever heard of an american SW&D label called Rogan? We used to stock it at Robby Ingham when I was there, similar but very awesome stuff, extremely well made.

    Hey Toby,

    What's your experience with the fit on HY trousers? Just after the general vibe.

    Thanks all - P Johnson looks the way to go.

    Also that wiki site looks great. Have to agree on the Hugo Boss being fragile... I've have two here less than a year old and they are starting to wear on the pant pockets and around the jackets cuffs.

    And for shirts - I used to purchase the slim fits from Herringbone before they went into administration/bailed out. Are they still worth the money?
